A variant first printing of this rare World War I-vintage stapled paper pamphlet reprinting “Speeches delivered at the Guildhall, London, on September 4th, 1914, by Mr. Asquith, Mr. Bonar Law, Mr. Balfour and Mr. Churchill.”
Though Cohen in his bibliography notes two printings: the first of 50,000 copies in October 1914 (recorded with the parliamentary warrant line: 10/14), the second of 100,000 copies in November 1914 (11/14); this copy is dated 9/14 and must supersede both.
A true rarity, with a fold mark through the center and some fraying to the stapled binding edge but otherwise in very good condition.
